What people are saying about Botlierskop Private Game Reserve

Great experience all round. Got what we expected. Saw all of the animals they said we would. It was a very bumpy ride and you do need a jacket of some kind. We had not booked a table for lunch but managed to get one. We were very glad we did as the food was amazing.

Very nice and informative tour. Ours was super friendly, attentive and funny. We have all seen Big 5 and much more! However, you should make sure that the jeep ride is very jerky, so it is not suitable for frail people.

We had a great time with the game drive and our great driver, Mandela, who took a lot effort for us so we could see all the animals and gave us a lot of information.

It was a wonderful experience and our guide was the best!

Very well organized and a great guide we were very happy
